I watched Hit Me Baby One More Time last night. The premise of the show is performers of the Where Are They Now genre are pitted against each other to win money for the charity of their choice. The performers sing their most popular song from back in the day and then sing a cover of a currently popular tune. It’s hosted by a giant of a man with some sort of indistinguishable and barely intelligible Anglo-European accent.
Thelma Houston (Don’t Leave Me this Way) blew away the competition on last night’s show. The week before, Irene Cara won but I was rooting for Wang Chung especially after they did a cover of Nelly’s It’s Getting Hot In Here.
Staying with the music theme of this little post, these are the CD’s I brought to work today:
1. Pure Funk (Various Artists)
2. Thank God It’s Friday (Soundtrack)
3. 50 Number Ones (George Strait)
4. Lie to Me (Johnny Lang)
5. O Brother, Where Art Thou (Soundtrack)
(Note to Susan in Minnesota and Wang Chi: I know, I know, “No Al Stewart?” He’s at home by my computer for evening listening.)
